Unless that's Joseph Shelby Barrera,
or we have a Robert Johnston Harley
or a Robert Anderson Hettinga, we'll
have to settle for Richard Taylor as
the FoRK test case for that theory.

CSA generals' names seem to follow a
power law, with Alpheus and Zebulon
down in the tail, and the five most
frequent of first names (William/49
John/36 James/26 Thomas/17 Robert/15)
yielding ~40% of the generals.
